The Good Juice
98 Point Tuscan
Fattoria Le Pupille, located in the Tuscan region of Italy, is a small estate owned by Elisabetta Geppetti. In the 1990s, Fattoria Le Pupille established a presence in the international wine market. Critics have rewarded its quality and consistency throughout its range of wines. Of particular note has been its Saffredi, which is found on the wine lists of the world’s best restaurants.
Location of Vineyard
In the 1970s, Fattoria Le Pupille was a farmhouse near Pereta with just five acres of Sangiovese vines. Even on this small tract of land, a good red wine was being produced and bottled, albeit in limited quantities. In 1978, the Morellino di Scansano DOC was created; that same year marked the first harvest of the new DOC wine at Le Pupille. Eventually the space in Pereta became too restrictive and Le Pupille moved to its current headquarters, where the estate now comprises 175 acres.
As a young owner, Elisabetta Geppetti decided to become personally responsible for her small vineyard with one clear goal: to make great wines. The first harvests under the supervision of Giacomo Tachis began in 1982-83. The first vintage of Fattoria Le Pupille Morellino di Scansano, under Elisabetta, was carried out in 1985.
Acclaim for Fattoria Le Pupille
“There is always a single face that identifies a region: A sole producer with the charisma and communicative talents required to perform the ambassadorial duties that bring a relatively obscure wine area to the world stage. For the Maremma, that person is Elisabetta Geppetti. Her newest releases confirm the extreme quality that distinguishes Fattoria Le Pupille” - Robert Parker

Rated 98, James Suckling
"This is another great Saffredi following the perfect 100-point 2012. I tasted it a year ago and thought it was sensational. Even better now. It's so dense and structured yet shows a lively, jazz-like vibe that gives it form and beauty. Needs at least four to five years to soften. Powerful and muscular. Cabernet sauvignon, merlot and petit verdot." 98 points, James Suckling, jamessuckling.com
